(Nadie hablara de nosotras cuando hayamos muerto)
Gloria Duque was happy. Juan, her husband, earned quite a lot of money as a bandillero in the bull ring. They lived with her mother-in-law, Doña Julia, who became the mother Gloria never had. But Juan came up against a bull and Gloria, desperate, started to drink. Having lost all hope, she left for Mexico where she sometimes worked as a prostitute. There she was an involuntary witness to the murder of two policemen and, frightened that the criminals might want to eliminate her, decided to return to Spain. Now she has to decide between the way marked out for her by her mother-in-law, that of accepting poverty with dignity, or getting money by doing small hold-ups. Meanwhile, the Mexican mafia has sent Eduardo Guzmán to find Gloria and kill her.
